And Honestly We Haven Thonestly we haven t had time to get acuainted with any of them so we care There s no emotional depth in the wording and no depth in the art I love Grace O Malley but this graphic novel didn t light any fires for meI think that it s good that this is out there and it s a good learning opportunity for middle grade or even some high school readers I don t think it s particularly memorable and since we re missing so much I was disappointed to see the authors not push a message of feminine strength through as well as they could have Still this sort of thing is a good addition to a school library Personally I Santa Sold Shrooms just find myself coming out of this disappointed It s not bad it sust not what I wanted I guess I received this book for free in a Library Thing giveaway in exchange for an honest reviewI ve been reading comics every month since I discovered them in December They re uick vary in tone and add to my Goodreads goal I m a big fan of Europe and I love to read books set in that continent Pirate ueen was my first historical comic and I learned about the legend of Grace O Malley The artwork was beautiful and I loved how it showed the main character at different ages I liked the girl power and strong feminism she exuded in her life My only complaint was that it was hard to follow at times and I got the names mixed up I congratulate the author for all their research and the hard work that went into creating this cool comic Thanks for this opportunity and teaching me about a rad lady in into creating this cool comic Thanks for this opportunity and teaching me about a rad lady in The story of Grace O Malley the Pirate ueen of Ireland O Malley continued to rally the Irish against English invasion throughout her life surviving many assassination plots and backstabbing from her own people It was uite an interesting story but could be umpy at times Received a review copy from Candlewick Press and Edelweiss All thoughts are my own and in no way influenced by the aforementione.
